Instruments previously built in Carle Place, NY during the mid- to late 1980s.
Before Ibanez's Steve Vai JEM model, Jem Custom Guitars was offering custom body designs, paint jobs, and electronic packages. Jem President Joe Despagni's ads used to run "As seen on MTV and on stage with Steve Vai."
Pre-Ibanez Jem guitars are definitely eye-catching, quality built electrics. Prices in the secondary market will reflect quality of workmanship, wood types in construction, and custom work. While the more custom body designs may currently be out of fashion with the retro fascination, these are not guitars to sell cheap.
